This Spring Mount Airy Toyota Gives Back

April 17th, 2019 by

Mount Airy Toyota is pleased to announce our participation with local community partners in upcoming fundraiser events around the Charlotte and Mount Airy regions. Check out the golf fundraisers that we are playing in and learn more about what special programs we are supporting around our community.

11th Annual Pfc. Adam Lee Marion Memorial Golf Tournament

On Thursday, April 25th, Mount Airy Toyota is participating in the 11th  Annual Pfc. Adam Lee Marion Memorial Golf Tournament. This golf tournament has been held eleven years in a row in honor of Private First Class Adam Lee Marion.

Private First Class Adam Lee Marion was killed in Iraq on April 28, 2008 while serving in the military.  Adam was 26 years old when a rocket attack outside of Sadr City, Iraq claimed his life. He was deployed as part of a North Carolina National Guard unit tasked with performing route-clearance missions.

Family friends of the Marion’s, John Lawson and Ralph Holt organized the golf benefit in Adam Marion’s names and had the idea to put the proceeds towards supporting the Children’s Center. The original mission was to raise about $10,000 a year for the center; this amount has gone above and beyond their expectations, growing each year.

4th Annual Destiny Lives On Golf Tournament

On Friday, May 10th, you can find us out at the Cramer Mountain Club participating in the 4th Annual Destiny Lives On Golf Tournament.

This event includes a day of golf (the tournament will be a Captain’s Choice format), followed by lunch and an awards ceremony with prizes and raffles.

The proceeds from the tournament go towards the Destiny Lives On Foundation. The tournament itself aims to honor and support families that have given or received an organ donation, and supports efforts to promote and educate people about the importance of organ donation.

Space to participate is limited, and we recommend that you register early to guarantee your spot. It costs $520 per foursome team, and this includes green fees, cart, swag bag, breakfast/lunch/beverages, and 4 mulligan packets per team. Cash prizes are awarded to the winning team. Player registration opens April 10th, 2019.

You can mail a donation or a sponsor payment to:
